If you are staying in Chicago you should spend the bare minimum of time in your hotel room. That said, for the price of admission, The Inn's rooms are a little on the small side and cold. The location is great, walking distance to lots of great restaurants and bars, and the proximity to public transportation means that attractions and... More

Great location, close to public transport, close to Navy Pier and the Mag Mile. And most of all only 3 walking blocks of the Sheraton which held the Cub Convention. Small rooms/bathrooms, however very clean and a great value. Would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
